Expanded employee assistance

One thing that almost naturally follows from the workplace wellness trends we discussed in this article is a trend in itself: expanded employee assistance. 

For more and more companies, employee assistance now also includes helping people with their non-working needs. Organizations have come to understand that if people are happy in their lives – that means both their personal and professional life – that they are more engaged and productive (as we mentioned in the previous trend).  

What does expanded employee assistance look like? 

Expanded employee assistance programs can include: 

The possibility for employees to connect with counsellors to help them in areas such as financial services;

  • Or legal-related assistance 
  • Offering people help when it comes to working from home with young children
  • Or providing employees support with major life events
